Willing - Full Stack Software Engineer

Who we are

We are a small team who want to create a better future for every family in the world. We are ambitious, resourceful and humble and are excited to meet talented people who will make us better.

Why we exist

We started this company after losing a loved one.

We learned first-hand that dying creates an expensive mess for the people we love most at the worst possible time. Important decisions like who will receive your property and who will raise your kids are left to judges and strangers.

This is because end-of-life planning is an arcane process involving lawyers, notaries and thousands of dollars.

We believe technology can help make this radically simpler and more accessible for millions of people.

What we do

Willing helps protect and care for the people you love after you pass away.

We’ve passed legislation that will radically change how the whole industry will work, partnered with the leading legal minds in the country at Harvard and Yale Law School, and built an initial product that’s been used by more than 350,000 people and will act as the base for the future of end-of-life planning.

We want to make it easy and affordable to make your final wishes legally binding and effortless for your loved ones to carry them out.

We've been featured on Wired, Business Insider, The New York Times and were one of TechCrunch's  top demo day picks.

We are well-funded by some of the best technology investors in the world, including Y Combinator, Peter Thiel’s Founders Fund, Accomplice, Ashton Kutcher and 500 Startups.

Who you are

What you will do

You will work directly with the CTO to build a seamless product that will guide users through their end of life planning.

Our product will need to replicate and enhance the experience of working with an estate planning lawyer, which requires a tight integration of diverse technology and deep UX thinking. You will work with streaming video (live and pre-recorded), digital signatures, document rendering, backend APIs and front-end UX flows.

You will implement much of the product vision from scratch and will have 100% impact on the direction of technology, including deciding on parts of the tech stack.

You will be coordinating with a team of smart and motivated people while tackling interesting challenges at every step.

What you should expect

You will receive generous compensation, including stock options, health benefits and free lunch every day.

We are based in Miami, FL. If you are not local, occasional travel to our office will be required.

This will be a rewarding experience you will remember for the rest of your life.
